UNA Police Chief: Campus to close Oct. 9 following threat
FLORENCE, Ala. – The University of North Alabama will close Oct. 9 following a threat found on the wall of the library bathroom, UNA Police Chief Bob Pastula said.
The university will also be closed on Oct. 10 for fall break.
Pastula told us the threat was not directed at anyone specifically, but it said four people will die on Oct. 9 this year.
UNA President John Thornell said cancelling classes and closing campus a day early will not make the threat go away, but “it sends a message that the university takes threats seriously and our first priority is the safety of our students, faculty and staff.”
Even though the campus will close a day early, UNA Police will still have additional officers on campus to help with security around the residence halls.
If you have any information about the threat, please call the UNA Police Department at 256-765-4359.
